Shower upgrades have practical advantages, too; poorly installed or aging showers are a primary cause of water damage in older homes. Further, if any family member has trouble entering the home’s current shower, an upgrade can easily include a ledge-free, lip-free entrance and a shower bench. A shower bench is also a nice addition to a steam shower or one with multiple showerheads at different levels.

My chief concerns when working on any shower project are the waterproofing, vapor barrier and leveling. With all showers, but particularly with steam showers, we want to make sure that no moisture can escape to damage walls, ceilings, studs or joists. The shower should drain well and provide a sure footing for anyone using it.

If a complete renovation isn’t in the budget, the easiest upgrades center on the showerhead: messaging, handheld, rain or panel (a line of water jets mounted down the wall). Another easy change is to install a curved shower rod, giving you a little extra elbow room.

The picture on the right shows how we can combine textures in a shower renovation—river stone on the floor, subway tiles on the walls and a raised patterned tile as an accent. You might compare the control knobs in this shower renovation to the levers in the first shower. Shower fixtures are available to suit every aesthetic and budget.

Bathroom renovations are a specialty of WORKS by Jesse DeBenedictis and showers are a favorite. You may be drawn to a renovation by the sheer pleasure of a comfortable bathroom or to fix an accessibility, water damage or drainage problem. Whatever the motivation, we’re ready to give you the shower of your dreams.
